    • Definitions and differences in both variants clearly signposted.
    • Brazilian Portuguese vocabulary where it differs from European-African Portuguese and some American English terms.
    • Coverage of colloquial and slang registers.

Review:

'A new up to date modern Portuguese dictionary like this one is long overdue. It will no doubt be an invaluable constant companion for all translators and interpreters working in the Portuguese language who are often required to know much more than ordinary dictionaries provide such as everyday informal and familiar expressions used by Portuguese and English speakers all over the world' - Patricia von Simson, Chartered Linguist, Translator and Interpreter

‘This remarkable work is an encyclopaedia as well as a dictionary. It not only lucidly explains words and the colloquial use of language but takes the user on a fascinating journey through the worlds of Portuguese, Brazilian and British cultures.’ - Malyn Newitt, Emeritus Professor, King’s College London

‘This new dictionary, a distillation of many years of work by a well known lecturer and a highly-skilled translator with a love for language and a clearly demonstrated knowledge of both Lusophone and English language culture, will prove an invaluable and much needed addition to the bookshelf of students at every level, and of professional translators work-ing between the two languages. Its author is to be congratulated for condensing so much information into a user-friendly format whose content goes far beyond that of many dictionaries, including technical terms, examples of correct usage and idiomatic expressions, national variants and cultural notes. The inclusion of the most recent orthographical changes in Portuguese ensure that it will remain an invaluable reference work for many years to come.’ - Dr. J. Flannery, Lecturer and Translator

‘Quanto mais nos adentramos no estudo da lingua portuguesa, mais necessitamos de uma ferramenta de trabalho essencial como o volume da Professora Allen, seja pela aproximação dos fatos gramaticais à realidade linguística contemporânea ou pelo caráter essencialmente prático e acessível que o distingue. A must have.’ - Eunice N. Santos, FE Tutor

‘...there is a great deal of value packed into its compact format...This eminently practical dictionary, by a scholar and highly experienced teacher of Portuguese, will find many users- students, translators and others.’ The Linguist

'...this new dictionary is a very welcome contribution towards redressing the comparative under-representation of Portuguese on the shelves of language bookshops in this country.

One of the main difficulties in studying languages with a global presence, such as Portuguese, is that divergences inevitably arise in different parts of the world. However, this dictionary clearly identifies differences between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese, and it also reflects the orthographic changes which were recently agreed between Portugal and Brazil.

This dictionary is also thoroughly up-to-date, which makes it an invaluable source of reference in a world where linguistic change is occurring at an ever-increasing speed.’ Ian Hancock, Translator

'I recently purchased this dictionary and I must say that it is the best of its kind I have ever found....a masterly piece of work.’ David Madell, Translator, Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and the Institute of Translation and Interpreting
